Remember Andy King?
No worries if not: It's a scientific fact that 2019 has felt like an entire decade thus far, so no one can blame you for forgetting things that happened way back in January. That was the month Netflix released the documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened-- the first of two documentaries on the same music festival that conned a bunch of oontz-oontz-loving millennials out of their money. Andy King is the party planner featured in the flick who became a cult/internet hero after viewers saw him explain that, as the event was collapsing in the moments before it was scheduled to start, organizer Billy McFarland asked him to perform oral sex on a Bahamian official so he'd release a bunch of water stuck in customs. King, in what soon became one of the year's best memes, calmly explained how he sucked it up (his pride I mean), swished some mouthwash, and hustled over to the official's place, ready to do the ultimate job for the team. His act of (almost) service paid off: He's now coming to your TV screen.
Deadline reports that production company Spoke Studios is currently shopping a TV series to "a range of broadcasters and platforms." Spoke sees King, who has decades of event planning experience with big names under his belt, as something like the Tim Gunn of the event production world, and is looking to capture King's frankness and experience "across genres from original talk shows, unscripted series and podcasts."
Nothing seems to have been sold or announced yet, but given the power of a good meme, and King's ability to turn a career low into golden opportunities, some kind of series feels inevitable. Hopefully the events on his show won't be as stressful as the Fyre Festival, but it'll no doubt be an inspiration to everyone who believes in the power of a job well done.
